For the last three years and change, Taco Joint at 911 N. Peak Street has consistently offered up kickass breakfast tacos, Disaster Queso that punches regular queso in the queso balls and jalapeno ranch that makes me love being alive.
And they just opened a new location at 6434 E. Mockingbird Lane with all the same deliciousness, plus margaritas. Plus beer. Plus, they're open on Sundays now. Plus, you can get breakfast tacos all day every day. If you get inside one thing today, it should absolutely be the new Taco Joint at Mockingbird and Abrams.
Oh, hey The Menu. I see your many combos under eight dollars and I slow clap you.
It was Sunday at noon. And there was a giant ass line at taco church. I recommend ordering Disaster Queso as an appetizer when the line's this long. Queso comes out almost immediately, which means you get to eat your appetizer at jealous people who are still waiting in line while you wait for your tacos. Mmm. The cheesy-guacamole-y taste of jealous bitches.
This is a good margarita. Drink it with your face.
But, where's the jalapeno ranch?!?! Chill your shits. It's right by the soda fountain. I wanted to put my mouth on it.
Even better news, this Taco Joint will be open late. Corey McCauley, co-owner of Taco Joint, said that the Mockingbird and Abrams location will be open Fridays and Saturdays until 10 p.m. and Sundays until 9 p.m.
If you're thinking, "Mockingbird and Abrams -- isn't there a Fuzzy's Taco over there that serves delicious tacos?" you're absolutely right about the first part. Get to Taco Joint, sit on the patio, inhale some queso and tacos and look true happiness in its happy jalapeno ranch face.
